The teaser of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi will be out on October 2 and it has only Krish being credited as the director. For those of you wondering as to why do we feel a need to mention this since Krish was officially the director of the film, rumours suggested that Kangana Ranaut would want to share director's credit for the film since it was being reported that she had directed a few portions of the film. But the Queen of Bollywood has let go of the honour. For the uninitiated, Kangana had stepped into the shoes of the director when Krish had to leave the project for his other work commitments. The actress wore the director's hat and re-shot a few portions of the film, which will be clashing with Hrithik Rohan's Super 30 and Emraan Hashmi's Cheat India on January 25.
And now, as per a source close to a leading daily, when Zee Studios offered Kangana Ranaut the opportunity to be billed as a director alongside filmmaker, Krish, she politely declined. Elaborating more on this, the source added, "Kangana re-shot portions of Manikarnika over a 45-day schedule. She did it out of her sheer love for the subject. When the studio asked her if she would take credit for it, she turned down their offer saying that it was her responsibility to ensure the film turns out well."
Besides Kangana, Manikarnika: The queen of Jhansi also features television actress Ankita Lokhande, who is making her Bollywood debut with this one. Sonu Sood, too, was a part of the film, but had to leave the project due to his work commitments. The actor's spokesperson had issued an statement which read, "Sonu has always been a thorough professional and honoured all his commitments. He had informed the makers of Manikarnika about his dates and schedule well in advance. Inconveniencing the team of his current film to accommodate the demands of another are against his professional principles. Sonu has taken the higher road ahead and wishes the team of Manikarnika all the best."
